The AIBs 2018 Gala Evening
The AIBs 2018 will be hosted by Mark Barton, Bloomberg Television.
Mark, pictured, first hosted the AIBs in 2016 and returns to this 14th annual awards dinner that will take place at LSO St Luke’s in London on Wednesday 7 November 2018.
Mark Barton is an anchor for Bloomberg Television and is the network’s longest serving presenter in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He currently hosts “Bloomberg Markets” and “The European Close,” which bring the most important developments of the financial and business day to a global audience.
Mark began his career as an intern at Bloomberg News in March 1995. Six months later he was one of the five journalists who founded Bloomberg TV’s European operations in London.
He’s played an integral role in establishing Bloomberg Television as a global financial and business news network. Mark has anchored all of the network’s prime-time programs, breaking and analysing the biggest global business, economic, financial market and geopolitical events of the past two decades, including six UK general elections and six US elections. He’s travelled the world to interview more than 10,000 newsmakers. They’ve included presidents, princes, prime ministers, members of the US Federal Reserve and most of the global business elite. Among his personal career highlights are interviews with Microsoft founder Bill Gates and the late Israeli leader Shimon Peres.
Mark is a true all-rounder. His professional interests range from politics to sport and film. His one professional regret remains not reporting from the red carpet at the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood.
Mark graduated with a bachelor’s degree in History. He has three small children and lives in London.
